Melville Clark Apollophone Player Piano + Phono
By Tom Binnall

My most recent "Jewel" is a 1915 Apollophone in walnut.  Both pedal
and electric, with an expression mechanism.  After 90 years the machine
still works.

I want to secure rolls, and need to know what to look for as well.
Can someone tell me what is the proper phonograph head?  This one is
missing.  Who built the phonograph motor?
